Finally, an anime about family for family!

This is one of the most family-friendly "TV-14" shows I've ever seen. Yes there's a good bit bit of violence with gore but the focus on the family and the tone of the series make it something that can promote unity in the family. There's also no inappropriate "fan service" as of yet in the show. One scene in episode 9 does have suggestive content, but it's played for laughs and isn't particularly graphic or "sexy". In addition, there's a side character that can act inappropriately, and this is something to watch out for if it crosses a line in the future. But so far, it's one of the best anime I've ever seen. Inspirational, funny and something families can feel comfortable watching together. Hopefully it stays this way.

This title has:

Great messages

Appropriate for ages 10+

There is some cursing in this anime but it’s not a lot. Mild blood and or gore.
